The Dancers of Cuba

April 26, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I had the pleasure to travel to Havana, Cuba in the fall of 2015. While the sights and sounds of Old Havana were a draw, of more interest to me, photographically at least, were the dances and dancers of Havana.


The opportunity to work with the students and ballerinas of the Ballet Nacional de Cuba, members of the Raices Profundas dance company (Afro-Caribbean), and the flamenco dancers of Flamenco Ecos was truly a joy. The professionalism of the dancers, the gorgeous (and often deconstructed) surroundings, and the group of a dozen other photographers made this an outstanding experience.

My photographs are now on display through July at "Art in the Parlor," St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, 1187 Wyatt Way NW, Bainbridge Island, Washington. The parish office is usually open 9am - noon weekdays and 8am - noon Sundays.
